Keep reaching for the stars

Proverbs 1:5 (NIV)
Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.

I'm sure that I am not the only one who has regrets—things I wish I hadn't done and things I wish I had. Sometimes I wish I had talked more and studied less. Sometimes I wish I had hung out at the mall instead of hiding in my room behind a book. There are things I can't change about the past, but that's not to say I can't improve my present and future.

Instead of focusing on the regrets of the past, think about what you can do now to affect your future. Is there a childhood dream you can revisit? Was it lack of opportunity or resources? Or were you just afraid to fail? Can you give it a try now?

Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to help you be an example of stretching and growing as encouragement to your child.
